A New Heaven and a New Earth, St Cuthbert and the Conquest of the North, by Katharine Tiernan
In 1069, William the Conqueror’s brutal reprisal brings untold suffering to the people of Northumbria, and its people are in revolt against their new rulers. Caught between the Northumbrian rebels and their new Norman masters, the Community of Saint Cuthbert at Durham is struggling to survive. But the mysterious influence of the Saint brings aid from the furthest corners of the kingdom—and from the least likely of his followers. Thorgot, an Anglo-Norse adventurer from Lincoln on the run from the Normans. Edith, the repudiated wife of Durham’s dean and Aldwyn, a visionary monk of Winchcombe.
Extraordinary twists of destiny draw the three together to bring about a new order from the ashes of the old. By the time the foundation stone is laid for a new cathedral at Durham, their lives have changed for ever and the survival of the shrine is assured.
A gripping story of violence, heartbreak and redemption that brings the trilogy of novels about Northumbria’s warrior saint to a dramatic conclusion.
